Mahindra XUV300 TurboSport launched, Price starts from Rs 10.35 lakh
Mahindra has launched the new XUV300 TurboSport in India on Friday. The price of the new XUV300 TurboSport starts from Rs 10.35 lakh and goes up to 12.90 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
The new XUV300 is said to have the highest-spec powertrain in its class with a 1.2-litre T-GDi turbo-petrol motor, which is higher than the existing 1.2 turbo-petrol and 1.5 diesel engines. However, this new motor is available only on the higher three trims of the XUV300 – W6, W8 and W8(O).
Mahindra XUV300 TurboSport engine
The XUV300 TurboSport is powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol unit that churns out 130hp, 230Nm (250Nm with overboost function). The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The new motor features a 250bar GDI (gasoline direct injection) fuel system that improves performance and fuel efficiency. According to the company, the XUV300 TurboSport can reach 0-60kph in just 5 seconds.
The company has also provided a mild-hybrid start-stop system with the XUV300 that will further improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Mahindra claims that this new engine has a fuel economy of 18.2kpl.
This new engine produces 20hp and 30Nm more than the older 110hp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit, which makes the XUV300 the most powerful compact SUV in its class. Both turbo-petrol engines will co-exist, along with the 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine.

The vehicle is going to be offered in four new colour options, including dual-tone bronze with black roof, white with black roof and black with white roof, along with a monotone bronze option.
